Photos of Wadi Hammamat

Flickr (Su Bayfield)

Thanks very much to Vincent Brown for pointing out a set of photos on Flickr of the Wadi Hammamat engravings, taken by Su Bayfield. The Wadi Hammamat is one of the most undersung pieces of archaeology in Upper Egypt, and is a relatively short drive from Luxor (when the Egyptian government have the route open for tourists). Su has captured both rock engravings and the abandoned sarcophagus. Note the difference between the golden Western Desert and the dark Eastern Desert - they couldn't be more contrasting!
